Legend has it that the first onion burgers were created in El Reno during the Great Depression by enterprising burger-flippers looking for ways to stretch increasingly scarce meat.

Even though NE 23rd Street is one of the most historical streets in Oklahoma City, many locals tend to forget that it’s also home to some of the most grassroots and homegrown eateries in town, the best having a specific focus on soul food, barbecue and old-fashioned Southern cooking. NE 23rd Street restaurants are OKC’s culinary history all in a few blocks and really should be revered as such.
